20. "The last gnostic" Origene, the head supporter of the unbiblical immortality of the soul

"The last gnostic" Origene, the head supporter of the unbiblical immortality of the soul
 
"After his conversion of Beryllus, however, his aid was frequently invoked against heresies. Thus, when the doctrine was promulgated in Arabia that the soul died and decayed with the body, being restored to life only at the resurrection (see soul sleep), appeal was made to Origen, who journeyed to Arabia, and by his preaching reclaimed the erring."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Origen

"During his career in Caesarea, Origen made several more journeys, all to assist in the correction of heresy. In the first, he succeeded in bringing Beryllus, Bishop of Bostra (Roman Arabia/modern Jordan) out of adoptionism and back to orthodoxy. 
The second journey was also to Arabia, and this time dealt with those who believed the soul dies with the body and is resurrected with the body. A council was convened with Origen present, and those holding this view were converted.
A third mission, the place and time of which is unclear, found Origen conducting a council and questioning Bishop Heraclides on several matters, including the diversity and unity of Father and the Son, the two natures of the Son, adoptionism and the the immorality of the soul."

"The first mention of Christianity in Arab lands occurs in the New Testament as the Apostle Paul refers to his journey in Arabia following his conversion (Galatians 1: 15-17). Later, Eusebius of Caesarea discusses a bishop named Beryllus in the see of Bostra, the site of a synod c. 240. Christians existed in Arab lands from the third century onward.[6]"

"The Councils of Arabia were two councils of the early Christian Church held in Bostra, in Arabia; one in 246 and the other in 247. Both were held against Beryllus, the bishop of the local see, and his followers, who believed that the soul perished upon the death of the body, but that it would one day rise with the body. Origen, who was present at both councils, convinced them that their belief was heresy."

Councils of Arabia
In 246 and 247 two councils were held at Bostra in Arabia against Beryllus, Bishop of the see, and others who maintained with him that the soul perished and arose again with the body. Origen was present at these synods, and convinced these heretics of their errors (Eusebius, Church History VI.19; Baronius, Ann. Eccl. ad an., 249, sect. 6-8).

Polycarp the bishop of Smyrna believed that the soul will be resurrected (so it die):
“O Lord God Almighty, the Father of thy beloved and blessed Son ("servant" in original) Jesus Christ, by whom we have received the knowledge of Thee, the God of angels and powers, and of every creature, and of the whole race of the righteous who live before thee, I give Thee thanks that Thou hast counted me, worthy of this day and this hour, that I should have a part in the number of Thy martyrs, in the cup of thy Christ, to the resurrection of eternal life, both of soul and body, through the incorruption [imparted] by the Holy Ghost. Among whom may I be accepted this day before Thee as a fat [Literally: “in a fat,” etc., or, “in a rich”] and acceptable sacrifice, according as Thou, the ever-truthful [Literally: “the not false and true”] God, hast foreordained, hast revealed beforehand to me, and now hast fulfilled. Wherefore also I praise Thee for all things, I bless Thee, I glorify Thee, along with the everlasting and heavenly Jesus Christ, Thy beloved Son, with whom, to Thee, “in the Holy Ghost”, be glory both now and to all coming ages. Amen.” 
Eusebius (Hist. Eccl., iv. 15) 
The soul is mortal and must be resurrected "to the resurrection of eternal life, both of soul and body"
Unfortunately, some take the pagan concept of the immortal soul.
"After his conversion of Beryllus, however, his aid was frequently invoked against heresies. Thus, when the doctrine was promulgated in Arabia that the soul died and decayed with the body, being restored to life only at the resurrection (see soul sleep), appeal was made to Origen, who journeyed to Arabia, and by his preaching reclaimed the erring."

Arnobius of Sicca (4th-century) as annihilationist

His doctrine is known as "annihilationism". Arnobius propagated a doctrine that unbelievers passed into "nonexistence" either at death or at the time of resurrection. "As to man, Arnobius . . . denies his immortality. The soul outlives the body but depends solely on God for the gift of eternal duration. The wicked go to the fire of Gehenna, and will ultimately be consumed or annihilated" (Schaff 859). It was condemned as heresy at the Second Council of Constantinople in 553 A.D. This doctrine reappear again in church history time to time, is special after the 12th century.
